It was not until 1902 that Louis Comfort Tiffany turned his attention to jewelry. At first, his artisans worked at Tiffany Furnaces. Five years later, this department moved to the Tiffany & Co. store at Fifth Avenue and 39th Street in New York City. From this date until the department closed in 1933, all of Tiffany’s jewelry and precious objects fashioned out of gold and silver were made at that location. Tiffany exhibited his precious jeweled objects and jewelry to tremendous acclaim at the great international expositions of the day. During her presentation, Ms. Zapata will discuss the artisans who crafted the jewelry and the objects they created. She will address the influences of insects and plant forms as well as Oriental and Middle Eastern styles that were fashionable at the beginning of the twentieth century.
